The NSDAR National Commemorative Events Chair, Norma Eckard, recently visited Shanksville, PA, the site where Flight 93 crashed on 9/11 at the hands of terrorists, causing the death of 40 passengers and flight personnel and 4 terrorists. She listed several events that we as a DAR chapter need to recognize, and the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 is one of them. In addition, a window banner, We Remember, published by the National DAR, has been sent to all members by our regent, Lisa Pomeranz.
Boatlift, An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience
The largest boat evacuation in history. On 9/11 there was no way out of Lower Manhaatten. All means of transportation were shut down. A call went out from the coast guard for help and in minutes hundreds of boats arrived in lower Manhatten within minutes to pck up people who were stranded. The commaraderie among all of these people was incredible. There were half a million people evacuated by boats that day.
